Cappadocia is a surrealistic landscape that you will have never witnessed before in your lifetime. This fascinating place looks like an another planet, but it is in Turkey. During your visit to Cappadocia, you have the opportunity to experience this beautiful land to the fullest.
The volcanic eruptions were so strong that in some places the lava was up to 150 m in thickness. Over many millions of years, volcanoes, wind, rain and ice sculpted the region which we now know as Cappadocia. As the landscape was eroded, basalt stones remained and formed conical structures with some reaching as high as 45 m.
The local people referred to these unique rock formations as “fairy chimneys”, a name that has endured throughout the ages. If nature was the first artist to arrange the decor, it was Anatolian humankind who carved the rock and built houses, churches and over 30 underground cities out of it over the centuries.
Nowadays, Cappadocia is an open-air museum full of unparalleled natural and cultural phemomena.
